‘Strawberry Social’ saw many winners

Was it pure luck or were the Grey Nuns of our hospital’s past still praying for sunshine at the La Verendrye General Hospital Auxiliary’s annual “Strawberry Social” last Thursday afternoon?
All weather forecasts pointed to rain, but organizers forged ahead with setting up the event outside.

The sun continued to shine over the festivities all afternoon.
With continuous crowds enjoying the booths and refreshing treats, plus more than 600 take-out orders being delivered, the event was a huge success!
The community really supports our hospital.
Winners at the social included Glenna Morand (bake table), Nikki Bagacki (book table), and Judy McCabe (planter), Jane Elliot (garden statue), and Jean Boileau (garden delight basket) at the plant table.
The lucky dozen winners were Laureen Vandetti (boy basket), Dorothy Wepruk (girl basket), Mark Addison (spa basket), Susan Marr (craft/book basket and cuddly friends), Cecile Hebert (Afghan pillow), Jodi Jewell (fishing knife), Jeanette Anderson (Vidal Sassoon and pink goodie basket), and Betty Brown (turbo vac).
Rounding out the winners were Freda Yuill (summer reading), Kathy Silvia (socket set), and Mary Ducharme (fruit bowl), Beatrice Rawn (socket/bit set), Louis Decaire (designer bag), Irene Laing (tea set), Ruth Caldwell (kitchen basket), and Leda Beck (digital photo frame).
